Elder Ring is now in the early stages of production, with the trailer consisting of pre-rendered footage.
A couple of days ago a collaboration between George R.R. Martin and FromSoftware leaked courtesy of an bit of an error on Bandai Namco.
Elden Ring is coming to PC (and PS4 and Xbone) at some point.
If you're a fan of the real Game of Thrones, then you're probably the type of fella who demands to know where the next book is in George R.R. Martin's saga of Fire and Ice. This is a FromSoftware title through and through, rich in fantasy and RPG action.
I would have to say the biggest difference is it being open world.
Simply put, it sounds like an open-world Dark Souls. What he personally means by open world is that it is a game with a "large, open field to play in". In Elden Ring you'll apparently be exploring kingdoms. Don't tell me you don't see it. Look up at the sky.
FromSoftware, helmed by legendary video game designer Hidetaka Miyazaki, is responsible for some of the biggest games to emerge over the last decade.
Miyazaki says that the world of Elden Ring will be "ripe for exploration". There will be magic and a focus on the RPG elements, in contrast to Sekiro's action-oriented gameplay (though, obviously, there will be melee combat). Perhaps we could see Elden Ring some time next year.
"ELDEN RING brings together two incredible masters of their respective crafts", said Chris Gilbert Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. The catch: it's set in a fictional world designed by Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and best-selling author George R.R. Martin.
